...Fire Danger Statement remains in effect from Noon to 6 pm
Today...

A cold front will cross the area this afternoon with winds
becoming strong and gusty. Sustained winds by midday will be
between 15 and 20 mph with gusts over 25 mph through the afternoon
hours. Temperatures will climb into the upper 70s to lower 80s.
Drier air moving into the region will result in relative humidity
values falling between 20 and 25 percent. While fuels will be
marginal, the combination of strong winds and low relative
humidity will result in increased fire danger.

Please refer to your local burn permitting authorities on whether
you can burn on Saturday. If you do burn...you are advised to use
extreme caution since fires can quickly get out of hand under
these conditions
